(GPR) survey of portions of the Old White Meeting House Cemetery in an effort to mitigate any

adverse effects on archaeological resources that may result from the proposed widening of

SC Route 642 (Dorchester Road). This work was conducted through Davis & Floyd, Inc., for the

Dorchester County Sales Tax Authority (DCTA) in advance of road improvement activities

along this portion of SC Route 642. This project is being developed and advanced by DCTA and

the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). All phases of research and

fieldwork were conducted in accordance with the South Carolina Standards and Guidelines for

Archaeological Investigations (SCDAH 2005). ..."
